David was born and educated in England and trained in medicine at Birmingham University.  He came with his wife to Australia in 1961.  David has been interested in birds and bird photography for as long as he can remember but, for many years this had to take a back seat to running a medical practice and rearing a family.  Then, in the late 1970s, he decided to write a book on Australian birds of prey and this came to fruition in 1984 with “Eagles Hawks and Falcons of Australia”.  Since then, he has authored and provided the photography for many books on Australian birds, including groups such as kingfishers, owls and waders.

The evening commences as per usual at 7.30pm on the second Friday of the month (13 April) in the Fellowship Room – which located behind the Uniting Church on Lyttleton St, Castlemaine (next door to the Art Gallery).  Members and visitors are all welcome, and there is no cost for entry. Stay after the talk for a light supper.  Feel free to share this amongst your social networks!
